This popular book from the Great Migration series is now available in paperback. In it, Robert Charles Anderson tells the story of the Pilgrim Migration by relating the story of each family or individual known to have resided in Plymouth Colony between 1620 (when the Mayflower arrived) and 1633. Each of the more than two hundred sketches provides information on the early histories of these immigrants as well as their New World experiences. This material is followed by complete genealogical accounts, including all marriages and children of the immigrants.
Reviewing the book, author Nathaniel Philbrick (Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War; the award-winning In the Heart of the Sea) has lauded Anderson’s efforts: “Applying the skills he has perfected in his ongoing Great Migration Study Project, Robert Charles Anderson has created the essential Pilgrim reference work. Here in one volume are concise but richly detailed biographies that are full of scholarly rigor and yet are a pleasure to read. A remarkable work of synthesis and original research, this book will be the bible for Pilgrim studies for a long time to come.”
“Anderson’s scholarship sets new standards, and his accounts are definitive. They are essential for all genealogical libraries and for all historians specializing in the Old Colony.”
